Named after the Irish home of Dr. Robert Davis, a Charter Member, the Lodge was first held in 1867 in the Barber Hotel. After a few years the members bought a building of their own which was destroyed by fire in 1899 with the loss of all records and regalia. They then bought a building called Fisher Church, which was taken down and moved to York, and used for about 20 years until sold. The pews from that church are still in use in the lodge room. The Brethren then bought the Barber Hotel in 1923 and remodeled the second floor into the current Lodge Room, which is still in use today. The building was designed by architect Wm. Broughton and is of late Georgian design, influenced by the Regency style common to Southern Ontario in the 1800ís.
Enniskillen Lodge No.185 previously met in the old historic Barber Hotel at York until it moved to Caledonia January 2, 2006 and Binbrook January 6, 2014.
